Who we are
In late 2017, a group of social researchers with over ten years of experience in social and market research noticed that there was a gap in improving research capacity especially in research industry in Myanmar. On the other hand, the social enterprise model was in the infancy stage in the country. As a result, they got an idea of establishing a research company focused on capacity building based on the social enterprise model. It was the birth of the Thuta Nyana Company Ltd – a registered research services and consultancy company in mid 2019.
Founders of Thuta Nyana Company Ltd have rich survey project experiences in public health, agriculture, livelihood, micro-finance, governance, education, disaster risk reduction, impact assessment and so forth with the research clients from UN agencies, INGOs, LNGOs and Multi-International companies across the Myanmar by using qualitative and quantitative methods.
Founders of the Thuta Nyana believe the value of research in development of Myanmar so ‘Developing the research capacity among local youths and supporting the local development in Myanmar’ becomes as our dream.
Thuta Nyana is a Social Enterprise to assist building the social research capacity of local youth of Myanmar and create opportunities for them through research network and research services. Moreover, the local developmental programmes are expected to be supported by the newly trained local researchers. Our primary customers are local youth of Myanmar and clients of developmental research services. Our products are research based training and developmental research services in all over Myanmar.
The name ‘Thuta Nyana’ in Myanmar language is composed of two words – ‘Thuta’ and ‘Nyana’. ‘Thuta’ means Knowledge and ‘Nyana’ means Intelligence. So our company represents for combination of both knowledge and intelligence.
Our logo is a blue quill and a white magnifying glass with handle in the background (outer white ring). The quill stands for the documentation of the information and knowledge. The shape of a magnifying glass represents exploring and searching the fact.
